From the Back Cover:

"In a time when the world has grown tame and we have to manufacture our adventures, Mungo Park's "Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa" is both an education and a delight. The Africa he entered was uncharted and unknown, the farthest outpost of a truly wild and richly mysterious planet. He was the first European to go there and come back again, and he rewarded his society--and ours--with a geographical and anthropological marvel of a book, an adventure story to cap them all."--T. Coraghessan Boyle
